Adrien Brody's Home Is His Castle
Adrien Brody has a lot to brag about: He won an Oscar for The Pianist. His girlfriend is the lovely Spanish actress Elsa Pataky (you might remember her memorable turn in Snakes on a Plane). And he recently purchased an actual castle in Cleveland, New York. Oh, and Giorgio Armani renovated it. Not bad for a kid from Queens.
Here at the DT, we're not fans of snakes and shiny statues, but upstate real estate certainly gets us excited. And we're not alone. When an Oscar winner buys a castle in a tiny town, wanders around the shops (he's been spotted at Wal-Mart), and attends the local theater, Cleveland's 758 residents get understandably excited.
If 50 acres of land and a drafty castle aren't on your wish list, but you'd still like to experience small-town life, check out this Quick Trip to Beacon, New York. Here, cute B&Bs, avant-garde shops, and art galleries might provide a better cover for any celebs wishing to go incognito.
